If you live in Florida, you know the stress that emerges every hurricane season. The lengthy process of putting up shutters, making sure you have safety kits in case of an emergency, and the anticipation of whether or not you need to evacuate can be daunting. Installing hurricane windows is a great way to save time, money, and worry in the long run. If you are unsure whether or not you can really benefit with impact windows over shutters, you may want to consider the unexpected benefits that come with investing in hurricane windows.

Theft Prevention

Home burglaries tend to happen more than we think and windows tend to be the first thing that burglars have to get through in the event of a break-in.

Breaking through hurricane windows is practically impossible. If a burglar recognizes that you have impact windows installed in your home, it is very likely they’ll leave your home alone and head for their next vulnerable target.

UV Protection

With Florida’s blistering sun, it is no surprise that we experience some of the strongest ultraviolet rays in the country. Just as you would protect your skin from UV rays, you should take the same action for your home. Impact windows have been said to provide UV protection to your home. Sun rays that shine through your home can deeply damage your damage your flooring, furniture, window treatments and artwork in your home, causing them to fade and become discolored over time. Many times it may be difficult to notice this damage until it’s too late.
